You know those moments in your day when you are just completely content and comfortable? Like, everything is just perfectly fine. As a person whose mind is always racing and always planning, those moments don't happen too often for me.
Rarely do I feel settled. I just feel like there is always something that needs to be done, and there probably is something I need to clean. It's been a goal of mine for a while to just relax and take a deep breath once in a while. Our lives are so busy and time is just going by so quickly. I want to take note of when I feel happiest and content.
I feel happiest when I wake up early. I feel happiest when I exercise first thing in the morning-and when I really work out as hard as I can. I feel happiest when I drink a cup of Earl Grey tea with my breakfast. I feel happiest when I'm not running late. I feel happiest when I have a plan for the day. I feel happiest when I meet a friend for a lunch date. I feel happiest when I don't raid the junk food drawer at work. I feel happiest when the sun is shining. I feel happiest when I have a cute outfit on.
But, mostly I feel happiest at the end of my day. My favorite nights are the ones that end hanging out on the couch. It is an amazing feeling of contentment. The kitchen is cleaned. I've got my blanket, and I'm totally stretched out on the couch. I think Blake has gotten used to my feet being on him by now. Delly is all snuggled up-usually with me! That's how I know I'm her favorite. I'm happiest when we've found a good show to watch. I'm happiest when my husband is cracking up. I love his laugh, especially when he thinks something is really funny. I'm happiest when I feel so comfortable I fall asleep on the couch, and I know Blake will wake me up to go climb into bed.
Leave me a comment: When are you the happiest? Is it hard for you to notice those little things?
